Installation Space: Gabriel Dawe
On Saturday, July 30th, from 10am-4pm Gabriel Dawe will open Plexus no. 8 in the Installation Space. The new site-specific installation continues the artist’s exploration of thread and fibers as loaded materials implicating the complicated construction of gender and identity in his native Mexico. The Plexus series utilizes everyday sewing thread expanded from human to architectural scale. As it expands, the material begins to disappear, leaving broad swaths of color stretching throughout the space.
The opening reception for Plexus no. 8 will be held in conjunction with the Contemporary Art Museum of St. Louis’s Open Studios.
